Always liked this little boozer, but stayed here recently for the first time.
The pub has been changed since our last visit some years ago, a bit of tasteful updating which hasn't altered the informal nature of the place, and you can dine in the dining room or in the bar. Outside area is great in the sunshine, it's on the lane into the village, a quite lane but good fun people-watching.
Ales and wines are first class, the food good quality and value.
We stayed 2 nights in a well-appointed room, only issue was that being on the top floor the ceiling sloped dramatically, leaving not much headroom on one side of the room. Mrs S is only 5foot 2inches and even she bumped her head a couple of times. It would be useful to notify guests of this issue before they book.
The slope didn't impair our enjoyment, we had a smashing stay, and were well looked-after by the young team. Those bumps on the head just don't seem important after sampling the delights of the bar downstairs.......
